little change in plan to start with,

12 leds seems to be enough for one side of the screen for illumination. So total 12+12=24 LEDs to light up
both the sides of the screen. Hence I dont have to go market again for collecting LEDs . alone 12 leds
flooded my whole room with red glow.

Yes it was pre-cut but only in the table-saw they use to cut it. Initially the edge it self was like saw tooth :(, I had to do the polish to the edges manually. #:-s
